    Comments Off on SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS WEEK – FEB 6-10

    In conjunction with Jones County Emergency Management Agency and state and local partners, next week (February 6-10) will be recognized by the state of Georgia as Severe Weather Preparedness Week.

    In light of the devastating outbreak that affected the southern half of the state on January 21-22, a larger number of Georgians have now witnessed the incredible power/impacts severe weather can bring to this state/region.  Let us use this preparedness week as a reminder to everyone, of just how dangerous severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, lightning, and even flash flooding, can be across this state, and the Southeast region.

    Specific topics and days through the week are as follows:

    Monday, February 6: Family Preparedness (including NWR and Wireless Emergency Alerts).

    Tuesday, February 7: Thunderstorm Safety (large hail/damaging wind)

    Wednesday, February 8: Tornado Safety **including statewide Tornado Drill at 9AM EST**

    Thursday, February 9: Lightning Safety.

    Friday, February 10: Flash Flooding/Flood Safety.

    Thank you for all your continued support.
